Property Description

A truly unique opportunity awaits at this sunny Ned Gwathmey designed and Beck built home that is formal enough for entertaining and yet comfortable enough for day-to-day living. Perched atop 1.2 south-facing acres, this single-family home features direct views of Born Free and Simba. Referred to by the owner as her ''in town out of town home'', this homesite with envious views and primary/secondary designation enables the potential addition of a caretaker's unit, guest house, or secondary home. Imagine the possibilities for expanding the home or creatively using the large, flat, grassy plot just above it which backs to Forest Service Land and offers owner access to hiking and biking. This property has incredibly flexible options, not to mention your new mountain retreat would be the former home of a Vail mayor and Colorado Ski Hall of Famer! With the rare Vail convenience of ample parking outside the 3-car garage, your guests will arrive to a grand, heated stone pathway leading to the picturesque wrap-around front deck enveloped by manicured landscaping. Dinner may be served on either the private back patio surrounded by just the right density of Aspens, or perhaps it will be enjoyed in the dedicated dining space open to the primary living area with fireplace. From there one can retreat to the beautifully refreshed eat-in kitchen with dedicated work space and adjacent hearth room with wood burning fireplace. Hidden behind charming French doors the private master wing includes an office with handsome built-ins, a graciously sized bedroom with deck, a clean and modern bathroom and walk-in closet. The lower level includes 3 ensuite bedrooms, a large, open living space creatively divided into 2 separate areas, and a well-appointed kitchenette for convenient downstairs relaxing. A laundry room with ample storage and a sunfilled mud room with built-in cubbies complete this light and bright lower level.
